Day 5 of 5 day black and white photo challenge

Last day of challenge. Just finished work and after been there all day, find it hard to get creative. Don’t feel this is my best work. But the picture is of an EOS 5 I bought over 5 years ago. Its had one roll of film in it with 9 exposures. So no idea if it is still usable. So i need to get out and give it a go.

Canon EOS5 loaded with black and white film.

Day Four of 5 day black and white photo challenge

Had a walk along the Humber again. Started at Victoria dock and ended at the deep. Managed to have camera out for the 5 minutes of sunshine we had today. Right place at the right time.


Day Three of 5 day black and white photo challenge

Spent the an hour walking around Humber Country Park on the way home from work. All photos are from a canon 5d mark two. In camera mono and processed with photomatix HDR software.


Day Two of 5 day black and white photo challenge


Spent the morning photographing parts of Hull. I’ve decided on a theme for the daily submission. The picture should contain the word Hull or something iconic that is only found in Hull. All photos where taken with a Canon 5D mark two. 3 shot hdr plus/minus one stop stop at f8. Using the in camera mono setting, then processed in photomatix. The two instagram shots are taken with a Samsung S5

All the shots are along the river Humber along side Hull. Inside shots are from Thieving Harry’s cafe. Very nice coffee and cake, and nice and warm inside.

Apparently there is no angry way to say the word bubbles.1st time been to Thieving Harry's. Its pretty good.IMG_2012_3_4EnhancerIMG_2000_1_2EnhancerIMG_1961_2_3EnhancerIMG_1931_2_3EnhancerIMG_2045_6_7Enhancer

Photo Walk

Not done a great deal of photography recently due to personal reasons. Was Invited out with the Hull Creative Photo Group last Sunday. Very nice group. Had a wander around Hull city centre. Managed to grab a few HDR images and a good chat along the way.


Day with youngest daughter

Had a day larking about with my youngest daughter Georgia at Humber Bridge county park.


Whitby Goth Weekend April 2013

It has been such a long time since I posted anything to the blog. Life has taken different turns so the photography has taken a bit of a back seat. Over the next month I am planning more photos that I have not had chance to blog about.

So here is my 1st blog of the year. And nearly a year since I last blogged. Spent the weekend up at Whitby and photographed some of the goths and surround landscape. The weather was better than this time last year. Was nice to see a few family faces.

I will be posting a few more shots on face book. Will put the link on when I get them uploaded.

The Olympic Torch at the Deep

Decided to get up early and go join the crowds and watch the Olympic torch at The Deep in Hull. One of the stewards snapped a shot of me with one of the torch bearers.  Even managed to get on a YouTube video.
